The Peninsula Beverly Hills is showing the Super Bowl spirit with a seven-foot-tall bronze statue of a football player in its foyer. The football monument, titled “Touchdown,” was installed Feb. 1 by project manager Steven Barber and Lundeen Sculpture of Loveland, Colo. It will be at the location until Feb. 14.
“In 56 Super Bowls, no hotel has ever had a monument like this,” said Barber.
The Peninsula’s Managing Director, Offer Nissenbaum, reported to the Beverly Hills City Council Liaison Marketing Committee Feb. 1 that the hotel was sold out for Super Bowl weekend.
“We have been receiving Super Bowl requests for the past two years, so it has given us something to look forward to during some of the most difficult months of the pandemic,” Peninsula Director of Sales and Marketing Chris Rodgers told the Courier in an email. “Since the hotel is completely sold out with Super Bowl fans, we felt it was the perfect tribute to Los Angeles being the host city in 2022.”
